An allergen is a substance a person is allergic to. An allergy happens when breathing the allergen in, eating it, or touching it. After being exposed to the allergen an allergic reaction occurs. During an allergic reaction the body produces an antibody called IgE to bind the allergen. The antibodies bind together to form a mast cell. The allergens then bind to antibody that is attached to the mast cells. The mast cells release a bunch of chemicals into the blood. One of which is histamine, which causes most symptoms of an allergic reaction. Anaphylaxis Allergies affect every 2 in 10 Americans. The ability to have an allergy is inherited, but not a specific allergy is. Symptoms: Itchy/watery eyes, sneezing, itchy/runny nose, rashes, feeling tired or sick, hives, stomach cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, swelling, redness, or pain Anaphylaxis is the most severe reaction. It is a whole body reaction, which means the whole body is affected. The symptoms of anaphylaxis include: hives, wheezing or shortness of breath, tightness in throat, tingling in hands, feet, lips, or scalp.Anaphylaxis is life threatening and needs medical attention. *Have a parent-teacher conference to discuss the allergies so the teacher is aware *Know how the child may describe his/her symptoms Role of Paraeducator Who does it affect? *Be proactive towards all different kinds of allergies *If child has an allergy action plan copies should be given to the school nurse, teacher, andadministrators *Be aware and on the same page as the classroom teacher about students allergies *Know what to do in case there were to be a moment where a student were to have an allergic reaction *Have a plan set for if a student has an allergic reaction
